Spud Speak 4

– God bless the families who lost loved ones six years ago today from the terrorist strike. May we continue to be ever vigilant to the evil loose in the world and rely on the Lord as our shield and provider.

– We’re getting a little break in the heat (from mid-upper 90’s to high 80’s) but still not much rain in the forecast. The farmers in this area are really going to take it on the chin (and in the wallet) this year. Send your rain, oh Lord.
[I wrote this two weeks ago, and we still have not seen any rain. Rain is forecast towards the end of the week, along with the string of +90 degree days finally coming to an end. It almost makes me wonder why God is mad at us. Almost.]

– If you haven’t heard, the title for #4 will be Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (h/t to Looking Closer journal). For your reading pleasure, here’s an interesting web page about crystal skulls, so you can “prepare” for the big movie.

– Gen. Petraeus testified yesterday to Congress on the progress in Iraq. I shouldn’t be surprised, but it is still saddening and somewhat sickening to see the Democrats try to cut this honorable man down with accusations of lying and claiming he is just a puppet for the Bush administration. I got this from the OpinionJournal, since I refuse to register with the NY Times site:

In an editorial on Sunday, the New York Times, after saying that President Bush “isn’t looking for the truth, only for ways to confound the public,” asserted that “General Petraeus has his own credibility problems.” We read this as an elision from George Bush, the oft-accused liar on WMD and all the rest, to David Petraeus, also a liar merely for serving in the chain of command. With this editorial, the Times establishes that the party line is no longer just “Bush lied,” but anyone who says anything good about Iraq or our effort there is also lying.

While the Times has had increasing problems with credibility of their own, will this be the straw that breaks the camel’s back? I suppose they will always have their city readership, and continued following from those like-minded rabid liberals.

In the past few years I have believed another terrorist attack against the USA would help unite us like it did six years ago. Now any attack would probably be blamed on the Bush administration as some sort of set-up, a staged tragedy to help his/Republican ratings. It continues to amaze me how clouded minds can become when engaged in rage of Bush-hate. I still hear crap about how the US invaded for Iraq’s oil, that we’re in the pocket of the Sauds. One more blurb from the OpinionJournal editorial:

Late last week, for instance, we heard it said of General Petraeus that, “He’s made a number of statements over the years that have not proven to be factual.” This was from Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate.The Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Tom Lantos, said Thursday that General Petraeus would not be the author of his report; it would be written “by Administration political operatives.” He opened yesterday’s hearing, moments before General Petraeus was to speak, by saying, “We cannot take anything this Administration says on Iraq at face value.”

  1. Yep, they were spouting the “Petraeus is Bush’s lapdog” line on “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” this past weekend. Funny how easily “open-minded” people can dismiss ideas that don’t fit with their worldview.
